This two-family at 165 Diamond Street in Greenpoint has a slick-but-rustic renovation with exposed beams, exposed brick, white kitchen with marble island, and a deck overlooking a lush lawn. And while none of these things seemed to work well in yesterday’s rental, we think they look very appealing here.
We just wish they’d upgraded the exterior to match while they were at it. It’s currently set up as a three-bedroom duplex over a garden rental. The building last sold for $800,000 to an LLC in November, which did the renovation, according to a construction permit. Do you think the ask of $1,850,000 sounds about right?
